    I have a new customer with quite a bit of bermudagrass in her daylillies.

    I did some looking around. It appears Fusilade II is safe (for daylillies). Just wondering what you guys are using. I have no idea if there's a better of less expensive product.

    To be honest, it's not "terrible". But, it's something I'd like to get on top of.

    Ornamec is a 1.70% mixture and cheaper to purchase.
    It is a 10 oz. to the gallon product though.

    Bought some, yesterday.

    Thanks. I'll take photos of the "before" and "after".

    It doesn't indicate on the label if Ornamec is safe for azaleas or not (if it does, I overlooked it). Any advice? I have ONE azalea that's adjacent to the daylillys that has some bermuda grass coming in. This is the same azalea that I was attempting to pull around when I encountered the copperhead!

    Thanks, again.
